ONE little WORD!!

I know...it has taken me FOREVER to share my OLW.  
I originally had a different word but it wasn't working for me.  

My OLW = positive

Thanks to my mom for helping me choose this word.  A couple of months back it was Whoopi Goldberg's birthday and I happened to catch the end of the View.  She said something about how she is grateful to be here another year.   Now, I always seem to get a little bummed on New Year's, my kids' birthdays and my birthday.  I hate thinking about how fast the time is going and how my babies are growing.  But Whoopi made me realize that it is more than being bummed it is being grateful to be here.  

So I want to be positive....
about enjoying each milestone (years passing)
about losing weight and taking care of myself
about others even when they aren't positive
 etc., etc, etc.








Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy being positive,

Excuses, Excuses!!!

I know.  I always have an "excuse" for being absent.  You ladies amaze me with your regular posting and visiting of blogs.  Believe me...I always love seeing what you all create, which is why when I haven't been by in a few days I try to comment on all the things I missed.  Plus, I appreciate the time you take to visit my blog and truly enjoy having you as my bloggy friend.  

This past week I have been preparing for my darling daughter's 12th birthday - a Winter Wonderland.  Here is what I have been up to. Thanks for letting me share and ....

Happy Sunday,




 

  









Photo booth pictures - some will look better once they are cropped down.  
Didn't have time to do that!


       











To quote my mom - the party went out with a bang when I got a
phone call from a neighbor saying that two cars parked outside
my house were totaled.  Who would ever think they would hear
those words!?!?  We are just glad everyone was safe inside 
singing four verses of Happy Birthday [too loud to hear the bang].
I am still in utter disbelief!!!






P.S. Yes...they did find the guy.

December Daily ~ Finally Finished

Here are the last of my December Daily Pages.  My album is a little picture heavy.
I guess there were a lot of fun events that I wanted to remember.

Happy Enjoying,













Didn't finish this page because I actually lost one of the pics I cut.  Maybe it will show up!?!?

Make it Monday No. 32

Hello!!  The first sketch challenge of 2015.  We will only have one challenge for January.
I have left open the link ups for December to give everyone a little extra time to play along.

The sketch I created was inspired by the designs of the Simple Stories pages that have the 
6x12 inch pieces!!  I love their papers and the new ones are yummy too.  Come play along
with our team (new and current members).  All who link up have a chance to win a 
$10 gift certificate to shop The Memory Nest.

AND let me just say, the card and layouts created by the DT are brilliant!!
Hope they inspire you to play along!













Happy playing along,
